Iran Cleric Pummeled by ‘Badly Covered’ Woman After Warning

H/T Shab


An Iranian cleric said he was beaten by a woman in the northern province of Semnan after giving her a warning for being “badly covered,” the state-run Mehr news agency reported.

Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti said he encountered the woman in the street while on his way to the mosque in the town of Shahmirzad, and asked her to cover herself up, to which she replied “you, cover your eyes,” according to Mehr. The cleric repeated his warning, which he said prompted her to insult and push him.

“I fell on my back on the floor,” Beheshti said in the report. “I don’t know what happened after that, all I could feel was the kicks of this woman who was insulting me and attacking me.”

Since the 1979 revolution that brought Shiite Muslim religious leaders to power, women in Iran have been required to cover their hair and body curves in public with head-scarves and loose-fitting coats, to protect religious values and “preserve society’s morals and security.”

The government condemns short, tight and colorful coats and loosely tied head-scarves, and routinely organizes police patrols to enforce the Islamic dress code. Public surveillance increases in summer when some women opt for flimsier clothing.

  1. Ha, beaten by a woman. More Muslimas need to do this sort of thing. Although I have a suspicion that she was probably not a genuine Muslima. A lot of young Iranians are fed up with Islam and are either turning to Christianity or becoming Atheists. They just have to be careful and keep up appearances.

  2. There are lots of people who would enjoy beating the crap out of some iranian mullahs. Maybe they’ll get their chance, sooner than we think.
